The main features of the library are its wide collection of data types and algorithms, the precise and readable specification of these types, its efficiency, its extendibility, and its ease of use. 1. Introduction Combinatorial and geometric computing is a core area of computer science. In fact, most CS curricula contain a course in data structures and algorithms. The area deals with objects such as graphs, sequences, dictionaries, trees, shortest paths, flows, matchings, points, segments, lines, convex hulls, and Voronoi diagrams and forms the basis for application areas such as discrete optimization, scheduling, traffic control, CAD, and graphics. There is no standard library of the data structures and algorithms of combinatorial and geometric computing. This is in sharp contrast to many other areas of computing. There are, e.g., packages in statistics (SPSS), numerical analysis (LINPAC...
